Why am I fundraising?
I met a taxi driver in Mumbai, a month ago. I was chatting with him and he told me his story. He is 67-years-old, and has one son who is 33. His son has severe kidney problems which requires dialysis every week. Even at this age, and dealing with severe arthritis, he drives a taxi to support his son's dialysis. The cost of the dialysis comes up to Rs 4,000 per month.
I have committed myself to helping him take care at least of the dialysis of his son every year. I gave him 10k from my end. and will continue to contribute. If anyone wants to help or knows an organisation that can help, please let me know. My aim is to raise 50k for him every year. (Note: He did not ask me for the money, and actually dropped me off without sharing his number. My colleagues were unloading some stuff from the cab, while I went to the hotel, when I returned he had driven off. I took a car and caught up with him and took his number)
What do I plan to do with the funds?Give him the amount, so that he can take care of his son. it will be issued to him as a lumpsum every year.
